Just a week into March and there is already a lot going on! I ran my first race of the year this weekend (recap coming soon) and received my March StrideBox! As you can probably imagine I have become quite inundated with running related samples but I really do not think that could ever be a bad thing! This month StrideBox sent all new to me items that I am really looking forward to trying.
Along with the handy Stride Guide, StrideBox includes a workout card and a Recipe card. The workout card featured a “Firing up the Glutes” workout and the recipe card has a make your own “Fruity Endurance Gel” recipe.
The March StrideBox included one sticker (which I love and think is so accurate of me), six samples and one essentials item. The box also had a cute little St. Patricks Day sticker keeping the green paper closed as you first open the box. I always like the attention to the small details like that. Now onto the goods…
Jimmy Bar- High Protien Low Sugar Crunch Bar. Right off the bat I wanted to rip this bad boy open and give it a try- simply because of the flavor name- Peanut Butter Ice Cream! This can be used for pre workout/ post workout or as a meal replacement bar. I hope this protein bar tastes half as good as it sounds!
Boom Nutrition- Carb Boom Gel- Vanilla Orange. This gel is caffeinated and flavored with real fruit purees and concentrates. Some high points of the gel are that they contain no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners!
Ultima Replenisher- Electrolyte Drink Mix. This mix is pure and simple electrolytes. Simply mix with water and feel ready to go before a run, energized during a run, or rehydrated after a run!
Nuun- Vitamins for Daily Health. Truth be told I have never tried any form of Nuun. I almost feel like I am not a real runner saying that but it just has never been on my radar to try. I thought at first glance this may be some tablets to finally try it out but instead it is the Nuun Vitamins which is an extension of the product line. I am looking forward to giving the Blueberry Pomegranate vitamins a try!
Peanut Butter & Co.- Dark Chocolate Dreams. Did someone say peanut butter AND chocolate?! Sign me up for this! Good for anytime this little packet of chocolate dreams has a future on ritz crackers for me! I can see this in my post run snack rotation very soon!
2Toms- Blister Shield. This little packet creates an almost frictionless surface which reduces heat build-up and blister formation even on the hardest of runs. I have not really had a blister problem with my switch to Feetures! Socks, but I am happy to know this will be on hand in case a blister decides to make an appearance.
StrideBox Essentials Zippered Wrist Wallet. This little wrist wallet is a convenient place to store your key, credit card or cash or even some chap stick. The inside zipper keeps things safe and secure and the skin-toned color makes it not even seem like it is a wallet!
